Passing through Barmera, one of The Riverland’s finest towns, commuters will frequent the convenient service stations located on the national A20 Highway. Locals such as Jack Mehoff have questioned the safety on how some modes of transportation park their vehicles along this stretch of road, “You cannot see oncoming traffic whatsoever, someone must do something!”.
Interstate truck driver now local hero Trent Ch, who periodically visits the headlining service station decided to take matters into his own hands by parking across the entire entry/exit. We were given the fantastic opportunity to have a chat “On my previous visit, I overheard some nearby residents speaking about safety, in regards to truck parking nearby their local servo. I had to do something!” said Mr Ch. “This is how I will park every time I visit and I encourage my fellow comrades to do the same!”.
Statistically, one hundred percent of the time that a truck is parked in the wrong location, it becomes a hazard to motorists who need to see where they are going. Thanks to Mr Ch’s stroke of genius, not a single vehicle can go past, avoiding the area of concern completely!
The Riverlanderer will update as this story develops.
